RickD's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not neutral, not detailed"

The other day I tried an Audio-Technica ATH-M50X. Not the same price, for sure, but the day and night in quality and comfort. It joins the AKG on the fact that also has good except in severe bump on the TA are more precise and controlled low in a useful ... word. The AT also has a pretty amazing detail.
In short, if you are looking for neutrality or comfort will go elsewhere, of course.
If your budget allows, go listen to the Audio Technica.

[edit: i just saw here this headphone is filed under dj headphones ... well ... well yes, it's probably fine for a dj, indeed, where the requirements are ... hmm, how to say ... to have bass and good insulation. otherwise, forget it.]

Well, I for half an hour listening to an Archos (Go 7 "tablet 250) 5 player ... not the best source, of course. A colleague lent me because I lost my ITE.
It insulates really well but bcp thanks to the strong pressure exerted on the ears a bit oppressive, and it was not long ago that I have on the ears. I regret my ITE.
The arch is made of hard plastic, no padding, and starting to get a headache. I have a big head and is at max, it's just enough for me no more.
I do not see myself supporting it for several hours.

Foldable, looks solid.

It is not neutral for two cents, I would say mixing unusable.
Mega bump in the bass. I had to cut a lot to the EQ and it's still painful.
The bass is present but not well controlled, it was like listening to a drunken evening on sub sound.
The highs and mids are clean, not tiring, but not for two or detailed under.

Djubijana's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nice"

I have a few years. It allowed me to wedge my vinyl at parties (small pals). To walk with my music without worrying if drops of water were damaging it, considering the price ...

I love:
- The price
- Its comfort
- It is not ugly

I do not like:
- Its too short cable
- The soundstage does not allow me to work my songs

With experience, you do again this choice?
The value level, I have no complaints. I just got what it deserved award. While purchasing I was a student, the seller told me the Sennheiser HD25 that I found too expensive for me at this time and less comfortable. Ben finally in two weeks I'm going to buy these HD25.
I do not recommend for listening in urban areas, but it is not really made to work seriously with.

In what context do you use these headphones (house, club, etc.)?
On public roads, and to mix at home.

Do you find it tiring during extended wear (headband too tight, holding warm ear ...)?
A little pressure on the outside of the ears after 1:30. I find it very comfortable nonetheless.

Are you satisfied with the cable (length, section, connector, etc.)?
To be a DJ headphone cable is really too short.

The headphone you seem weak or strong?
It does not look like that, but I did not do very well treated during my traveling in my backpack and never had any problems with the cables.
After about 3 years I have, foams crumble, suddenly the sound changes a bit. It is less closed than before.
Once broken, it's broken. Change the pads is very expensive. The cables are not detachable.

This is a headphone that gave me pleasure in my journeys. It is not at all neutral. I used to mix a compo, well it is not very audible ... Then I could have done it with any headphones ...
I find it insulates from outside noise.
The quality is not bad for the price. She gave me lots of good listening time.
